Sea, Sun and Sand

Vogue Italia serves up an editorial that perfectly captures the elegance of classic swimwear; Greg Lotus shoots Sedene Blake Ayan Elmi, as bathing beauties, in this lovely vintage inspired story. Wearing coordinated swimsuits and wide brim hats, the girls seem ready for the Riviera; Sedene looks perfectly chic with her cigarette holder and champagne, while Ayan is as  regal as ever in a sexy one-piece.





  1. now these are gorgeous. these ladies are thin yet curvy and healthy looking… its fantastic.

  2. Wow, Sedene and Ayan have amazing bodies! This is great exposure particularly for Ayan. I remember seeing her in Gaultier haute couture show a few seasons ago. Hopefully, her agency will use this as a platform for bigger and better things.

  3. Nothing short of stunning! I am all over the second image.

    Yes, VI is certainly standing up for models of color and it’s truly incredible and inspiring!

    Mr. Lotus did a fantastic job, capturing the beauty of such beauties.

  4. Janelle , Betty , will one of you kick Trumancapote out of the party, he’s such a bore.. never a nice word to say.

  5. Its about time. I really was starting to get bored out of mind.something different and new!Love it!!!

  6. This is GORGEOUS!! Reminds me very much of a swimsuit editorial featuring Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington from back in day. Love it!!

  7. Dislike the cover, no offense… she should’ve kept her mout closed, second is stunning, and yes this does seem quite cheap but they worked it for the most part.
